    Safe In Their Alabaster Chambers
    by Emily Dickinson (1830-1886)

    Safe in their Alabaster Chambers —
    Untouched by Morning
    And untouched by Noon —
    Lie the meek members of the Resurrection —
    Rafter of Satin — and Roof of Stone!

    Grand go the Years — in the Crescent — above them —
    Worlds scoop their Arcs —
    And Firmaments — row —
    Diadems — drop — and Doges — surrender —
    Soundless as dots — on a Disc of Snow —
